Boneyard was one of the numerous systems that Freespacers fled to following The Freespacer Genocide. The presence of multiple low-gravity planets without any atmosphere made it an ideal location to land thousands of damaged vessels. Many of these vessels ended up being cannibalized for parts, and their metal skeletons now litter the rocky surface or drift in planetary orbit.
Autonomous mining facilities were eventually established to mine the planetary cores for minerals. Those Freespacers whose fleets were disbanded due to insufficient numbers, and chose not to join other fleets, instead live here in one of the douzens of prefab workshops scattered across the numerous worlds. Here they slave away tirelessly, hoping to one day bring each and every of the thousands of hulks back into operational status.
These “Bound ‘Spacers” as they are known have also built rudimentary orbital mass driver guns to fend off scavengers and pirates, and have a small stockpile of assorted small-arms. They will not hesitate to shoot anyone that comes too close, although they meager firepower they possess isn’t enough to pose a serious threat to anything the caliber of a military vessel.
